. >> sarah, our resident religion expert at the table, you have a religious unpopular -- >> i have a related unpopular opinion to sahil's, which is that politicians should stop talking about religion, god and the bible. >> so -- >> people would be less -- public polly would icy would be less on -- >> why is in no safe zone in politics? >> 20% of the american public is not affiliated with a particular religion. there is a smaller segment of those who are atheist than agnostic. still, as he points out, it is kind of amazing that given the rise in the number of american atheists and nonbelievers there is not a single one in the u.s. congress and that it would be poison to run and openly declare you're an atheist. look at mark pryor's ad where he talked about the bible and he doesn't have all the answers, only god has all the answers. it is, like, well, if you don't have answers, why are you running for office? >> but flip it around, though. there has to be some -- to an elected official who sincerely believes in higher power, practices their faith, there has to be some civic value in that too,

culprits seeking to diminish christmas, the american civil liberties union, the freedom from religion foundation, and the american humanist association. the most aggressive is the freedom from religion foundation, which routinely threatens to sue small towns and school districts if they dare utter the word christmas or allow choirs to sing carols in public schools. the irony is that nobody's bothering the atheists. they are free to celebrate whatever they want to celebrate. they're free not to believe, and they are free to snicker at anybody who does believe. that's not good enough for these people. they want to banish any mention of jesus in the public square. they are the oppressors. the christmas spirit people are just upholding a nice tradition. so why are we allowing anti-christmas madness? polls showed 47% of americans show there is a war on christmas. 40% do not. 13% are confused. so once again this year, i will keep an eye on the situation. helping me is the alliance defending freedom organization based in scottsdale, arizona. they have been very successful in defending tradit

who haven't made it in this country. >> yeah. there's no great religion that doesn't speak to this. at root, every great religion has some equivalent of the golden rule, some equivalent of the idea that i am my brother's keeper and my sister's keeper. some notion that even as we each take individual responsibility for acting in a responsible and righteous way, part of our obligation is to the larger world. and to future generations. you know, i think pope francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and soulful messenger of peace and justice. i haven't had a chance to meet him yet. but everything that i've read, everything that i've seen from him indicates the degree to which he is trying to remind us of those core obligations. and as i said in my speech yesterday, we live in a economy that is the greatest generator of wealth in history. we're risk takers, we're entrepreneurs, and we're rugged individuals. that's part of what makes us great. that's why we continue to be a magnet for strivers from all around the world. they think i'm not going to be held back

on either race, ethnicity, religion, preference, any of the signs of bigotry have to be addressed and not. and i think it just takes time. we're learning. we are still evolving. we are a better country today than we were 20 years ago, 30 years ago. we still have a ways to go. >> when you cast that vote in 19 yivenlgs you can look back and say within four years nelson mandela is released. four years after that, democratic elections, he becomes the president. did you think history was going to play out like that in 1986? did you think the struggle was going to take longer than that? >> i had no idea. in fact, i had no way of knowing how nelson mandela once being freed would react. my wife and i had the opportunity to visit robben island and stand in his cell and look out into the courtyard where he spent so many years crushing rocks. i felt a sense of rage welling up inside of me having think nelson mandela having spent so many years in prison could come out and walk tall and straight and say that he wanted to seek rec sill dwrags. that's an extraordinary statement i had no way of knowing w

come together on in this country, and we're divided by politics, divided by religion, divided by what cable news network we watched. but on sunday about two-thirds of america comes together in a watch football. they do this on super bowl sunday. most americans in front of a tv set. when you look up in the stands at a football game, you see america. when you look on the field, you see people from all geographic locations. you see people from all different classes extension of aqc people from all different racial groups. it is america down on the field. that's something we should be encouraging. we shouldn't be trying to stamp it out. and about what happened in new orleans a few years ago after hurricane katrina. the city looked down and out. it almost looked like their football team. do you remember the new orleans saints? they were so pathetic that their fans were bags over their heads. all of the sudden after hurricane katrina, there's all these politicians trying to bring back new orleans. they all failed. they can get the city united. they can't bring it back. what brought back new

of the parliamentarians, they religion against their to actually have a nuclear weapon. it's not like there hasn't been a debate within iran itself in regards to nuclear weapons program. it's not like all of iranians have said they want to move forward with nuclear weapons. they have been divided with their own society. they have that constant debate themselves. i think the iranian people made a choice when they decided to elect a more moderate president this time than they had previously. and so part of the voices of the tonian people are starting stare up also. they want to -- my hope is, and we will see whether or not they abide by the agreement and move forward, but my hope is that they would want to be a part of the international community. they cannot be part of the international community if in fact they have a nuclear weapon. as i said, it is important that russia and china has a stake in is also because here are individual countries who previously had not had a stake in this. important for them to have this p5+1 come together. if iran really wants to get back to the international committee, th
